    The one plus to bbm is you only need a pin to IM, no need to swap phone numbers.

    finally got a hold of someone to test it. Eh I say it may have gotten a lot of hype early but just as stated a little too late. With the only good thing I can see from it is the cross platform but sms and now hangout is fulfilling that. I feel like blackberry sat on this thing. It is obvious they are trying one last ditch effort to remain relevant but they have failed yet again in my opinion. Between the hassle it takes to add people and the lack of features I do not see it competing with what is out now. Be interested to hear your opinions.

    True but hangout you do not have to give out phone numbers as well. I think back in the day that may have been a big plus but now it is long in the tooth.

    Pc747 you're correct a little too late.

    wow... I remember a few years ago when people actually used BBs that BBM was wanted by some of us early Android adapters just for easy cross-platform coms but seriously, who the hell uses a BB anymore?? RIM just needs to accept their faith and die quietly and stop trying to rehash old/outdated products as something useful.

    I agree with a lot of what's already been said. If this incorporated SMS it would be a different game. But it does seem like a PIA to add people and there is no guarantee that the people you invite will want to use it.

    I just wish that Google would hurry up with adding sms to handouts.

    So its like KIK except nobody uses it.

    BBM would have been great 3 years ago when people still had Blackberries. Now that Blackberry is all but dead, it is YAWN

    ^ this

    If you are going to go software then you better give us something that is at least on par with what is out. You can not throw outdated hardware out there and think nostalgia will save you. Nostalgia may get you a look but then people remember why they moved on. Really poor work by rim and it highlights why they are where they are because of their reluctance or inability to keep up with the time.
